Question Lift, Thrust Angle, Track Bar

TLDR: Thrust angle is rather off. Should I do an adjustable track bar given my specs and lift while I’m at it?

This past week I swapped out to full OME Nitrochargers and stiffer springs on my 5th gen 2012 KDSS Trail Edition. Upgraded to Camburg UCAs too. Now I’m rocking a full +3” lift with just over 1” of rake and really like it a lot. Yesterday I went to have it aligned, and subsequently discovered that one tie rod is fully seized and the other is getting pretty worn. But it was too late in the day to do a fix. So I’ll change them out myself tomorrow night and take it back in later this week, no big deal.

Here is the wrinkle tho, when we had it hooked up, the Thrust Angle on the rear axel seemed excessive at 0.24*. Not sure what it was prior to this OME lift but spec is supposed to be below 0.15* as I recall.

So my question is do I get an adjustable track bar to correct the Angle before I go in again? (This was recommended to me along with doing the tie rods).

Maybe with new tie rods I could do without an adjustable TB... but maybe adding is worth it while I’m at it, I dunno?

Your collective experience, thoughts and guidance is appreciated.
